NEWCASTLE UNITED have today decided to appeal Cheik Tiote’s sending-off in their 3-1 defeat by Stevenage in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

The midfielder was shown a red card by referee Andre Marriner for a lunging tackle at Broadhall Way.

Tiote is currently set to miss Sunday’s big Wear-Tyne derby clash at Sunderland, as well as Premier League games against Tottenham and Fulham.

A failed appeal could see an extra game added to the ban.
